The Premier League title looked like developing into a two horse race but the draw between Liverpool and Manchester City has brought other teams into the mix. Chelsea and Arsenal had impressive wins on Sunday and are on runs of unbeaten matches. ARSENAL have won nine matches in a row and as the international break begins they can be backed at 40/1 with Ladbrokes to win the Premier League.
England will probably beat Croatia with something to spare in the UEFA Nations League fixture away from home on Friday night. The result of the next 100 friendlies will mean nothing compared to the outcome of the semi-finals meeting in the World Cup this summer which Croatia won after extra-time. ENGLAND play Spain in Seville a week tonight and are 16/1 with Paddy Power to win the Nations League.
The Dewhurst Stakes is the most prestigious race for two-year-old colts and identifies the favourite for the 2,000 Guineas. Too Darn Hot is the favourite for the race at Newmarket on Saturday. The horse is trained by John Gosden who also trains Enable who joined the Arc great with a second win in the race yesterday. The Cesarewitch is the second leg of the Autumn Double and is on the same card as the Dewhurst. LIMINI is 12/1 with bet365 to win the heritage handicap for Willie Mullins who must be respected when he brings horses to England for major Flat handicaps.
The biggest match in rugby league in England is the Grand final at Old Trafford. Saturday’s championship decider brings together Wigan and Warrington. Wigan had a superior point’s difference of 117 over 30 matches in the regular season and Super 8s. That equates to four points per match which is the handicap line. WIGAN are 8/13 with Betfair to win the match in 80 minutes.
England are in Sri Lanka for five One Day Internationals from Wednesday and over the next two weeks. There is clearly too much international cricket and the point of this series is not clear ahead of a World Cup and Ashes year in 2019. ENGLAND are at number one in the world rankings for 50 over’s cricket and are 4/9 with Ladbrokes to win the first match against Sri Lanka in the format this week.
